Bridgerton does Cinderella
Reviewed in Australia on 6 February 2021
Book 3 is Benedict's story. He's the 2nd son, so doesn't have the stress of responsibility for his family. But, that doesn't stop his Mum from trying to get that boy married!
Sophie is a "bastard child".... this back in the 1800's is so not the socially acceptable background for a woman.
This read was a god read. The turmoil that Benedict and Sophie both feels for following their hearts or following what is expected and acceptable is well written within this book.
I do love how the author has made the women in her books all very witty, strong and independent. Oh and there were a few little "easter eggs" sprinkled throughout the book, paying homeage to one of my favourite authors - Miss Austen.
